    schema:description ""Focusing on white band leader Jan Garber, black band leader Duke Ellington, white saxophonist Charlie Barnet, and black guitarist Charles Christian, as well as traveling from Catalina Island to Manhattan to Oklahoma City, Lonesome Roads and Streets of Dreams explores the geography of jazz in 1930s and '40s America. Looking at the touring lives of these musicians and their bands, author Andrew S. Berish showcases the ways musicians crossed physical and racial boundaries and how they found expression for the geographical and racial dynamics that surrounded them through the insistent music they were creating. By examining both the performances and cultural contexts of these leading jazz figures, Berish bridges two dominant scholarly approaches to the genre, offering not only a new reading of swing era jazz -- one that highlights a culture particularly preoccupied with place and mobility -- but an entirely new framework for musical analysis in general."--Provided by the publisher."@en ;
